Walking Dead T-Shirt Deemed Racist!

    Recently I watched the newest episode from The Philip DeFranco (reason be upon him) Show, and Philip mentioned the most recent controversy that surrounds The Walking Dead. After Primark, a clothing retailer in the UK and Ireland, started selling certain The Walking Dead T-shirts, some customers complained that they are racist because of their slogan: "Eeny, meeny, miny, moe." According to these customers, this counting rhyme (Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, catch a tiger by the toe. If he hollers let him go [...]) originally included the N-word instead of the word "tiger," and hence these t-shirts should be considered offensive.

    As Bill Maher put it, we live in a "pussy nation."

    Here's Philip DeFranco's episode which covers the story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnmjXFuqkSY

    And here's one of the articles written about that: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2017/02/23/walking-dead-t-shirt-racist_n_14961668.html
